From this site I have chosen this gem:
"I've been here in Japan for six months now, casing out the place. Amungst the repressed and the bizarre I have fished out enough information to qualify that the stereotype is true - the Japanese have representation in their hearts and technology at their finger tips and seemingly an allergy to direct experience. "
(the spelling mistake is not mine)
The site and the idea for 'no photography day' (which I shall be supporting of course) are the brainchild of 23 year old Becca Bland.
I won't waste time discussing the why's of her plan, or her slightly limited impressions of Japan. Just read the article. It speaks volumes about the writer, not the cause.
